1. Study and Survey
” Think much, read much, inquire much before you assume any career “— Russell Conwell
The secret to your success in any career are hidden in books. You don’t just need to read any books but books on success. I recommend you read these three powerful books – Think and grow rich ( by Napoleon Hill), Power of positive thinking (by Norman Vincent Peale), Maximum achievement (by Brian Tracy)
Leaders are readers. All great men who achieve maximum success are all voracious readers. Bill Gates reads for 6—8 hours a day. If you can read for just 2 hours a day, your life will not be the same.
“One of the most valuable things any man can learn is the art of using the knowledge and experience of others “—Napoleon Hill
Study and take strategic surveys on your area of interest before you start. Most people don’t like to read the books but the truth is that it is a must for achieving maximum business success.
The knowledge and informations you have about what you do are paramount to your success. Leverage on YouTube and watch educating business and career videos and seminars.
This will give you an edge over your competitors because knowledge is the basis for your success.
Study the system and understand the rudiments for a successful career. Search and discover your difference and uniqueness, set up a plan and kick off.
Don’t forget to write down your plans and your goals before you start off.

3. Love what You do
Building business or any career is never easy. You have to love what you do to succeed in it.
When you don’t have fun doing it, you will quit when things get tough.
In his attempt to invent the incandescent electric light, Thomas Edison failed more than 10000 times. He was able to persevere and kept trying until he succeeded because he loved doing it.
If you don’t love what you do, you don’t necessarily need to change what you do but youhave to change yourself. Change your attitude towards what you do and success will follow. You just have to start loving it.
4. Friends and Associations
This is one factor you should never take lightly if you really want to succeed in anything you do.
A friend is one you allow to influence your life. A friend is anyone you are comfortable with his paradigm and his ideologies.
Your friends and associations determines how successful you will be in life. The best kind of friends you should make are those who have the same vision as you do
” An eagle that often dwell among chickens will one day forget how to fly ”
Make friends with extraordinary people you can learn from. Never make a friend who is comfortable with mediocrity. Anyone who is not optimistic should not be your friend.
Characters and behaviors are learned from associates. Your mentalities are shaped by your friends and associates.
Look at all the people in your sphere of influence and consider how much value they have added to your Life.
It’s better to live your life without any friends than making friends that are going nowhere
5. Curb Your Spending Habit
Spending on luxuries, assets and liabilities should be done wisely.
The habit of spending and saving is what we imbibe from our daily lives. The best ways to curb an extravagant spending habit are to imbibe a constant saving habit and to invest more than you spend.
Saving of money is one of the essentials for maximum success. Many people do buisness or do job for a good number of years and keep revolving in a particular financial status. The problem lies on the fact that they do not know how to manage their finances.
Without saving funds, the individual suffers in two ways: first by inability to seize opportunities that comes only to the person with some ready cash, and secondly, by embarrassment due to some unexpected emergency calling for cash.
Here are some areas you need to curb your spending habits :
- Do not rent expensive house especially when your career or business is still growing.
- Do your laundry by yourself. Save the money you should spend on laundries.
- Buy cheap car if you need one
- Avoid expensive wears( clothes, suits, shoes, belt, watches, necklace etc) there are cheap wears you can buy. You should avoid designers wears.
- Adjust or avoid frequent shopping and don’t go for shopping in expensive places
- The restaurants you choose to pratronize should not be expensive ones.
The friends you associate with will affect you immensely in this aspect. A friend to a wise spender will be a wise spender.
To achieve maximum success is possible if you can stick to a wise spending, saving and investing habit.
